The good people at Turmapp have officially announced the start of their Street Series Tour. The objective is to uncover existing street soccer scenes in cities across the United States. Qualifiers will be held in 15 cities for 3v3 and 5v5 matches in which the winners will represent the U.S. at the global stage in Europ versus the likes our good friend Edward Van Gils, Séan Garnier, Issy “Hitman” and Soufiane Bencok, to name a few, with Van Gils as the official ambassador.
City qualifiers will commence in Miami, FL, on April 30 and end with the National Final in Chicago, on August 1, 2017. The champions of the 3v3 will be competing in Manchester, UK, as part of SoccerEx World Street 3’s, while the champions of the 5v5 will be competing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, against the world’s best Futsal clubs.
Turfmapp is looking to shake things and set this competition apart from others by making the first to promote equality and equity; the first gender-free competition and a non-pay-to-play for qualified underprivileged youths & adults.
